Do we really need another risk and needs assessment scale?

Assessing progress when youth have sexually offended. 

The Youth Needs and Progress Scale (YNPS) is a new assessment measure that is designed to help mental health, correctional, and child welfare professionals identify risk-relevant intervention needs among individuals aged 12 to 25 who have engaged in problematic, abusive, or otherwise illegal sexual behavior. All YNPS items are dynamic and, as such, can be reassessed to track progress toward resolving intervention needs over time.

The primary focus of this presentation is to assist participants in becoming more aware of:

  • Risk prediction problems and the need for a paradigm shift,
  • The importance of identifying dynamic intervention needs and progress toward resolving those needs,
  • The development, implementation, and testing of a developmentally appropriate assessment measures for identifying relevant intervention targets, creating and delivering appropriate case plans, and evaluating client progress, i.e., the Youth Needs and Progress Scale.
